  1. 30 grand and a ban for a few words. The FA must have another beano coming up soon. Unbelievable.

  2. never heard anything so utterly stupid £30,000 for having a joke whats the game coming to. and what about free speech and all that thought we were in a democracy in this country.

  3. The FA are a utter joke. Hennessey giving a Nazi salute, then having the audacity to say he didn’t know what it meant. Then being let off with no punishment. Or Snodgrass having a joke with doping officials, and getting £30,000 fine & a 1 match ban. This is West Ham lets fine them, The club should appeal to this judgement, asking how they came to the Hennessey result. Which is more disturbing a Nazi salute or a few words to officials.
